Alex Jones tells the truth, says Candace Owens, and overwhelmingly, the public response could be boiled down to, “Wait, about what?”
It’s not just that the conspiracy theories people associate with Alex Jones and his Infowars network are unbelievable. It’s that they’re dangerous and offensive.
Somebody told me that Rachel Maddow and Alex Jones are the same person, flipped.
Rachel Maddow tells her audience conspiracy theories, but makes them sound like the truth.
Alex Jones tells the truth, but makes it sound like a conspiracy theory.

Owens tweeted Saturday to assert (while passing the buck by contributing the sentiment to an anonymous source) that MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow is a conspiracy-spreader, while Alex Jones tells his listeners the truth. The response was swift and sharp: what truth?
Could she mean when Jones pushed Pizzagate, a conspiracy that resulted in a believer with a gun showing up to terrorize innocent diners at a pizza shop with no basement? Or perhaps when he called the child victims of a mass shooter actors, and his fans proceeded to harass grieving families for years? Or maybe the one about 9/11 being an inside job?
Alex Jones claimed that the Sandy Hook babies were not actually slaughtered by a gun nut.
He is a sick human being. And those defending him….. https://t.co/uA4vKLsThX

Alex Jones was successfully sued by a Sandy Hook parent. OAN sued Rachel Maddow and they lost and were ordered to pay her legal fees. And Candace has another fact free tweet.

Which is a worse person?
Someone who believes Sandy Hook was false flag operation by government
or someone who knows Sandy Hook was real but gains fame & power & makes millions of dollars by pretending to believe Sandy Hook was fake?
Candace Owens is as awful as Alex Jones pic.twitter.com/xHEOOBgf2A

Candace claims Alex Jones tells the truth? Does she believe Alex's pre-lawsuit claims on:
➡️ Sandy Hook
➡️ Comet Pizza

I guess it's kinder to think that than it is to think she supports Alex Jones' monstrous lies about Sandy Hook for attention and profit. Because that would make her a monster.

Alex Jones is a disgusting human being. The only person he is really in conversation with are other disgusting sick individuals whose soul has rotted to the core.
After Sandy Hook, he should’ve been ostracized from society unfortunately those rotten souls still support him!

Like when Alex Jones said the massacre of 1st graders at Sandy Hook was fabricated? My God, WTF is wrong with you? Pathetic. https://t.co/zMV0NU5WdN

It's worse than that, search Alex Jones Dec 31, 1999 broadcast on YouTube, he was on the air at 5pm claiming nukes were going off all over the world and Europe and Asia had gone totally dark.
He was interviewing people who were calling in and saying nuclear power plants exploded

Claming that Alex Jones tells the truth is either a desperate attempt to garner attention in the media or a sure sign that you lack fundamental critical thinkg skills…perhaps both.

This is embarrassing. Alex Jones says that the world is controlled by inter-dimensional demons. Literally. If you believe Alex Jones, you believe in literal alien demons.

When Alex Jones claims he’s not racist because he has Black friends, he’s talking about Candace Owens.
— Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) June 20, 2021
Notably, as reported by NBC in 2017, in court filings from Jones’ custody battle, his own lawyer describes him as a performance artist, and says that when he shares conspiracy theories on his show and website, he’s just “playing a character.”
The filings claim that the real Alex Jones, off the set, is nothing like the conspiracy-promoting character he plays — so when Candace Owens declares his ‘reporting’ to be a source of truth, she’s claiming for Jones a level of credibility that even his own paid representative wouldn’t claim in court.
